Cambodia’s 2020 tax revenues are expected to continue to grow, while transparency is also set to improve as tax officials become more aware of anti-corruption laws, according to the director general of the General Department of Taxation (GDT) on Monday.
Speaking to tax officials at a workshop in the capital on the Anti-Corruption Law, Kong Vibol said that strengthening legal enforcement and the use of technology in tax collection is set to further push Cambodia`s tax revenue growth, especially when a new technological system becomes fully operational in 2020.
“Understanding the anti-corruption law is very important for tax officials. Today, we are working hard on tax reform, especially strengthening good governance, transparency in paying tax and creating a fair playing field,” he said. “By strengthening the tax laws, code of ethics, procedures and the anti-corruption law, I believe it will put the tax officials in a more responsible position.”
